West Ham cruised through to the last eight of the Europa Conference League after a 4-0 second-leg victory over AEK Larnaca.
Gianluca Scamacca was thrust into West Ham’s starting line-up for the clash.
The £35million Italian striker has been an unused substitute in West Ham’s last four Premier League matches having struggled since joining last summer.
Scamacca was one of six changes made by manager David Moyes. The Hammers are 2-0 up from last week’s first leg.
It was Scamacca who gave West Ham the lead after 20 minutes, beating a defender before firing home.
Larnaca were reduced to 10 men before half-time, Gustavo Ledes seeing red for a foul on Pablo Fornals.
West Ham doubled their lead 90 seconds into the second half through Jarrod Bowen.
Bowen, left out of the England squad earlier on Thursday, made it 3-0 on the night, and 5-0 on aggregate, with a 49th-minute header.
Young forward Divin Mubama, on as a substitute, scored his first West Ham goal to make it 4-0.
